M Hotel Singapore has announced the opening of its brand new Waterfloor hydro-spa. Occupying the entire 11th floor of the hotel, it is sub-divided into three sections; the spa, gymnasium and swimming pool. There are currently five M Hotels in the world, but this is the first to incorporate a spa into its property. Reports claim that the group will monitor the success of this spa before making a decision on whether to develop the concept further.
The 8,000 sq-ft spa has five treatment suites, each featuring a different type of hydrotherapy, including a Vichy shower, long bath, a hydrotherapy tub and an envelopment machine designed for treatments in mud, clay, seaweed, herbs and essential oils.
Adopting a contemporary design and aquatic theme, the main materials used on the spa project are slate, wood, pebble and glass. Created by Japanese company, Zuoria Design, Waterfloor features treatment rooms tiled in white stone, two of which incorporate light boxes with bubbles and blue lighting, to simulate a relaxing, submerged feeling.
“Focusing on wellness, you can expect to experience a complete rejuvenation”, said Chee. T. Ng, general manager of the M Hotel.
The luxurious spa is jointly managed and operated by the hotel and a professional spa consultant. It is staffed by a team of qualified beauty therapists which offers services ranging from facial, spa and body treatments to hydrotherapy and reflexology. All beauty treatment and hydrotherapy products used are developed specifically for professional aestheticians and are manufactured in Switzerland and Europe. Signature treatments at the spa include the Waterfloor signature facial and Singapura ritual, which combines coconut and ylang ylang to reduce stress and improve skin condition.
Of the self-contained spa suites, the main focal points are the two impressive VIP Suites, fully equipped with hydro facilities. Outside, the pool and sundeck area can be reached by crossing stone platforms which sit on top of gently running water and pebbles. This is further enhanced by two massage pools, each equipped with jet selectors, a built-in handgrip and precise engineered 12-air injector hydro-jets for improved hydrotherapeutic effect. A specially designed rock climbing panel system, located in the pool area has been created to provide indoor climbing opportunities that parallel an outdoor rock climbing experience. Adjacent to the pool is the state of-the-art gym, also with glass walls and a climbing wall.
The relaxation lounge, reserved for members and in-house guests and featuring an array of wall sofas for reflexology, comes complete with a comprehensive audio visual system.
“To cater to the needs of the internet-savvy generation, the entire area has been equipped to provide guests with wireless broadband internet capabilities. As part of our enhancement programme, we continue to innovate and improve the facilities we offer to our valued guests,” concludes Chee.
